Will Fondrie picked up five wins over the course of the week to become the 36th player at Union Pines to have at 75 least wins. His overall record is now 79-14.
Gary Garner broke the 80-win mark in the three wins. He is now 82-23 in his career at the school.
In the win over Triton, Jay O'Connor reached the 30-win plateau for the Vikes. He is now 30-4 for his career.
